Morning Meetings


Our morning meetings will start at 8:45. A student will play music from the student computer so the class knows it is time to start. Everyday there will be a reporter and an MC. One day the meeting happens in Korean, and the next day it happens in English. If you want to know your day, see the schedule below.

Here are some useful websites to help you find news reports: (if you have others, please add them)

March 2, 2007

On Tuesday, the Korean government asked 3,500 experts what they thought the future would be like. This report is called the "IT Future Prediction 2020." Here are some of the things they said:
  • Hand phones batteries will last for two months
  • Internet will have words and picture… and smells
  • Computers, TVs, and game machines would all be the same thing
  • Soldiers will wear clothes that protect them, and change colour like a chameleon
  • Tiny robots will swim in our bodies like fish in a river, and find and fix problems
  • Millions of frogs will be saved with science students experiment on virtual animals
What do you think the future will be like?

March 5, 2007

A lunar eclipse is when the moon goes into the shadow of the Earth. The moon, Earth and Sun are in a line. On Sunday the eclipse began at 5:18am (2018 GMT), with the Moon totally inside the shadow of the Earth between 7:44am (2244 GMT) and 8:58am (2358 GMT). Not everyone in the world could see it. Only people in Europe, Africa, South America, and eastern parts of the US and Canada could see it.

During "totality" the Moon changed to a red colour. The light that touched the moon when through the Earth's atmosphere. The colour changes because of how much dust in the in the Earth's atmosphere. If there is a big volcanic eruption, the moon looks dark red and almost invisible.

On August 28 there will be an eclipse that we can see in Korea, Australia, and Alaska.
